Actually, if I could have given Dr. ARMELLINI 10 stars, I would have. It does take some time to get an appointment, but my advise is go ahead and do it, because she is worth the wait. From the receptionist, tothe nurse taking the family history,to the lab tech; all the staff were helpful and pleasant. Thank you Doctor ARMELLINI for a great appointment.

I did not have to wait more than about 5 minutes before they took me back to a room. The nurse took a detailed family health history, including parents, grandparents, siblings, cousins. Dr. Armellini is very personable. Actually seemed to belistening to what I was describing (unlike some doctors I have seen). Discussed other issues that might be causing the symptoms I was having. Office staff was very friendly and efficient as well!

I just can't say enough about Dr. Armellini. I left in tears of joy. We talked for nearly an hour. She not only asked many questions, but listened to my responses, to my concerns, reviewed my prior labs and records. She'sthe first doctor that has mentioned things like being gluten free and lab tests other than the standard check of TSH. Thank you Dr. Armellini. I have hope again.

I found her completely uncaring and I was never contacted about any of my results. I was also charged for a missed appointment when I didn't have an appointment scheduled. Additionally you have to pay for parking to see her...completely a waste of my time, money, and resources.

I heard of Dr. Armellini thorugh a coworker and I'm really glad I did. She is awesome! When I've needed more time and attention, she was a good listener, attentive and reassuring. Her medical advice and management of my condition havebeen great. At this point, I only have simple follow-up appointments. With other doctors, those have felt impersonal and almost dismissive. That's never been the case with Dr. Armellini. She is extremely good at what she does and has a great bedside manner. Highly recommend!
